Bridging Cultures


Saturday, February 25, 2017 – 7:30 PM

Washington Pavilion

( Concert formally titled Boléro )


Bridging Cultures, featuring Syrian-American composer Malek Jandali and Persian-American composer Behzad Ranjbaran, is an extension of the SDSO’s widely successful Lakota Music Project. These bridge projects create a collaborative environment by using music as a vehicle for unity, peace, and understanding.

Two of Ravel’s most-loved works – Rapsodie espagnole and the iconic Boléro – close this evening full of ravishing sonic beauty.

Jandali                                 Phoenix in Exile

Ranjbaran                           Viola Concerto, Roberto Diaz, viola

Ravel                                     Rapsodie espagnole
